To make tortillas:

  • Prepare your masa as per package instructions (buy here).
  • Break off pieces of masa from the main dough masa ball and roll them into 1 1/2-inch balls.
  • Place a piece of heavy plastic wrap on the tortilla press, put a masa-ball onto the center of the tortilla press and cover it with another piece of heavy plastic wrap.
  • Bring down the top of the tortilla press and push the handle down.
  • Open the press and carefully remove the plastic wrap from the top of the tortilla masa.
  • Slide your hand under the tortilla and flip it over onto your other hand. This makes it easier to remove the plastic wrap.
  • Repeat the process until you have made tortillas from all of the masa.
